Does it appear to be coming from the anus area of the fish? If so it may be anal prolapse, move the fish to a hospital tank of sufficient size and treat with Epsom salt 1 tablespoon per 5G of water, dissolve the solution in a separate container and add slowly over a few hours.

I don't think it will hurt anything though it does raise the hardness (GH) a bit. If you have a plastic tote or similar long container you could use that also as long as you can maintain the temperature and have a filter.
